Jennifer Giles isn't getting ahead of herself.
A senior on the Bluffton High girls basketball team, Giles has the Bobcats positioned for a run at a share of the Region 7-AAA title and a chance at a deep run deep in the Class 3-A playoffs. She and the rest of Bobcats can claim a share of the region with a win tonight over rival Hilton Head Island High.
"We're just taking it game by game," Giles said Tuesday. "We're just preparing for Friday night."
Giles leads the Bobcats (18-4, 8-1) with an average of 14.5 points per game along with 4.7 assists and 2.4 steals per contest. The sharp-shooter thinks the Bobcats' senior-laden team will pay dividends come playoff time.
"We hustle and we have a lot," she siad. "We don't give up that easy."
Giles set aside a few minutes this week for The Beaufort Gazette and The Island Packet and our two-minute drill.
